    Yup.....although perhaps it's better they didn't as I found the FCBD really poor next to SSM #1. I can already see that one of Chip's weaknesses is going to be trying too hard with the humor;...

    My bad; that scene was from the FCBD story....I read them back to back.

    So this issue was a bit of a mixed bag though I have to say I enjoyed it overall. It wasn't exactly what I was hoping for when this series was announced last winter and promoted as a "back to...

    That reads a little like Peter's sister will be his next love interest! lol

    Thanks for doing the legwork; coincidentally, the Sep issue of ASM was just solicited today (vol 4, #32) so I guess we can add one more to that tally ---and, yes, no way can they count all those...

    I think Nick Spencer would actually be a superb fit for a Spidey title; it would be great if he could rein in his political soapboxing---that certainly fits in his Captain America work but would be...

    I'm really torn on this career issue. On the one hand, I feel like being a photographer served as a perfectly useful job for Peter for 40 or so years: it introduced one of the best supporting casts...

    So....has anyone done the math on what issue of ASM we are currently on with original numbering? Assuming Superior was all part of the ASM run and counting in the various ".1" issues, etc.....

    I agree with Rincewind; both TW and WS are solid anthology-type series that are well worth picking up. There are some misses but, by and large, most of the stories are very good with a few great...

    But, to me, the value of a reboot isn't adjusting details to fit the modern age and tech; it is to wipe out the increasing confusing continuity. Ex: can someone easily explain to a new reader how...

    My guess is the entire Marvel line is in for a more complete reboot soon; they seem to be following in DC's footsteps when it comes to comics lately (and DC is following in Marvel's when it comes to...

    Eh, it wasn't just one thing that didn't sit well with me; it was really the whole vibe starting with juvenile humor and an overall silly tone. But I am willing to give the first issue---or first...

    Thinking more on this, I recall how Spidey's wit/humor was developed early on as a defense mechanism as he was very young and insecure when he started out as a costumed hero going up against older...

    I don't know Zdarsky's work at all but that FCBD preview was painful to read. That, combined with the advance solicits, have me considerably less enthused about this title; I suppose I will pick up...

    Y'know, I thought I was the only one who didn't realize Harry died in those final pages of SSM #200 upon first reading! Honestly, it wasn't until the next issue of Web or ASM or whatever where it...
  16. Poll: Will you be buying Peter Parker, Spectacular Spider-Man #1?

    There seemed to be a lot of excitement when this title was first announced back in February, along with the promise that it would be a more "street-level" title for Spidey recalling for many the...

    Not a bad thought; I think that was supposed to the case with Alpha but that whole story was a train wreck and so nothing worked at all.

    Here's the problem with coming up with many of these scenarios as I see it: we went through largely the same thing when Ben Reilly took over as Spidey back in the 1990's. Ben had to face new...

    My favorite Rhino stories----by a mile----are "Flowers for Rhino" from the Tangled Web series and Joe Kelly's story from ASM # 617 and #625. These stories are both wonderful and hold up to repeated...

    I believe Black Cat was supposed to "die" as opposed to Silver Sable

    That is true but I would argue he has done so as a stand-alone horror character and not as a Spidey villain (or even a super villain at all; he seems to have morphed into a supernatural/horror...

    I am surprised to see so many "D" ratings; it may be because, as you noted, something about the Peter/Norman showdown felt hollow----it seemed like an alternate universe version of them, probably...

    This wasn't a particularly good stretch for the title IMO but that Spider Slayer arc was a really good one and these were some fun stories before the "parents' return" story bogged things down and...

    Modern era Spidey is wisecracking too often IMO. He shouldn't be written like Deadpool and he often is these days. Tom DeFalco wrote both Peter and Spidey's voice near perfectly in his 1980's run of...
